1,iinl creek, aboul hIx anil a hall uiiles
north of Midway up Hoiuiilary ereek,
anil two and a lialf miles norlli of thu
Falls. It ia also known as Syinoiulu'
eras Liud's eaiuj), Owing U) Hi" recent date of iin1 strikes t'oinpai'iitively
little development Las liecii done in it,
hul KiiHii'ii'iii work has been done to
siiow up some valuable ore bodies,
The new lyiupin road inailu Ihis season
Is completed as far as the camp, ami as
a result shipment of ore from these
claims will be a comparatively easy
and inexpensive mutter compared with
the experiences of the Skylark, Providence and other mines in pasl seasons.
Tlia discovery claim, the Lend King,
was located by A. N. Synionds on 20|.li
of July. It lias a nine foot vein of
galeuaore, assaying31 oz, silver, $2 in
gold and ID par ceul lead. This is a
low grado ore, but the ore body is
largo and may be of groat value for
smelting purposes, as until ils discovery no local lead lia.ai) which could he
employed in the reduction of the various other Boundary creek ores waa
known In exist. Tlio vain lias in a lime
formation and has been traced on llu-
surface for fully one thousand feet.
Development consists solely of surface
cross-cuts,
Tin- High Kicker, a southern exlelision «f the Laid King, was located by
,1. Wilbur on July 21, The same vein
runs through this claim, Nu development lias as yet been done on It, bul
assessment work will shortly tip commenced,
The Coming 3Ian, which lies I" the
west of the Lead King uu ii parallel
lead, was located by Harry Morgan
also in July. Tbe vein on this clahn
lies in a slate formation, and Is aboul
fifteen feel in width, carrying ore of a
galenn character.   Onlyn little surface
work has been d ■ on il so far,    \
parallel lead exists ou this claim, which
liesa few yards from the main ledge,
it lias an average width of four feel
and average assays give 70 oz. silver
and traces of gold, The lead follows
through ilie Lead Ming location, and
is traceable for SOU feet. Development
consists of a ten foot shaft,
The Jim Crow, an oasterly extension
of the Lead King, was located by .1.
Wallace on July 23rd, nml lias a llfleen
foul vein carrying copper su phurels,
which lies between walls of lime nnd
porphyry. Assays of Ibis nre average
$8 in gold. Tho ledge is traceable for
1,000 feel on the surface. Develop-,
incut consists of surface crosscuts.
To the north of the Lead King Mr,
Jus. Sullivan nlso loeated a claim lasl
July called liie Big Diiluili. This is a
different body of ore tn the foregoing,
being a ledge of white quartz carrying
by assay $5 in gold, Tbe outcropping
Is thirty-five feel wido hy one hundred
feel iii length.
The Reward was located lasl August
by .Mr. Ail. Ilellinei's, manager of the
E. S, Graham Co,, Spokane, and is an
casl extension of Ihe Jim Crow, li
has ii narrow vein which proipeels
from $10 to $50 in gold, and lies in n

Fur Ihe pasl lew years large sums of
money, quite ample for the needs and
requirement of the lower Okanagan
mil Keltic river districts', have been
appropriated by the Provincial Gov-
il'llinent,   ll  would  naturally appear
stl'illlgo lo I ulsiilei' Ihal, such being
the case, an immense iiuiounl of discoid aii shniilil have existed ill the
maimer In which this section nf the
Province bad been treated by lbe executive, As a matter of fact the appropriations li.i'e been generous on-
ough and all thill the districts in ques-
linn were entitled in. hut ih ■ ipaniier
in which lliu sums were expended was
ivhore the mistake was made, We
honestly believe thai 111 Ihe whole ilis-
tricl smith of Okaungaii lake iiol half
i dozen men could have been found
who would have advised Ilie expenditure of any public money, either ibis
ir lasl voir, in milking a road from lu-
kameep I" Ihe fool of Dug lake, ill.
though Ihal route, when once completed, will afford lbe shortest road
and best, facilities for trade wilh Ihe
norlli, What was really required were
roads over Rock creek and Boundary
mountains, an(| the present road from
Fairview in Ponticton utilized till (be
Province could afford to cons! met the
shortor route mentioned, \ great
deal of blame has been attached to the
Lands and Works depart men! in connection with these mutters, but we
inusl admit we do not consider that
the Chief Commissioner of Lauds and
Works was responsible I'm' all lbe mistakes made, Nn man, whatever his
ability may be, can be'expected to he
conversant with all the minor details
connected with bis otllce in every section ni' snail an enormous country as
British Columbia—otherwise be would

be said, was in quartz, and Unit the
quartz was so rich in gold (hat the
men wh:i were there already were

had laughed at bis story so much, and
joked him on certain points of ll, Ihal
nn mallei' how they pressed him he
would not repent the news again. The

<on.
Mj'. C, A. R. Lanibly, who had been
on un assessment tour through Kettle
river, returned to Osoyoos last Saturday,
Five ton of D. A. ore were hauled
out of Midway by teamster Bonnet
last week. It went by way of Marcus
to the Tacoma smelter.
Mr. Thoinet left on Monday for the
felgh .waters of Kettle river, where lie
will remain a month prospecting and
trapping, before returning to work on
bis claim, the Klkhorn.
* Mrs. McDonald, the teacher for the
Midway school, came to Midway on
Sunday from the coast. School was
held for the lirst, lime this morning in
the hall over the store building,
Mr. 0. ,1. Lundy, who lias been slaying in Midway and who has interests
in Greenwood, returned tn White's
(Cani)i to-day, after visiting the Copper
■and other properties. Mr. Lundy will
return to Midway from Spokane
shortly, when he intends Inking up his
residence here.
Messrs. W. B. Moore and L. Holt
came, over from Loomiston on Monday
and are now visiting the Greenwood
eamp. They report a great change for
the better in Okanagan county during
the past thirty days, owing to the recent sales of the Rush and Oro groups
,of mines to eastern capitalists, and the
pew strikes at the head of Slate creek,
north of tlie Mathow river. Mr.
Moore was one of the old time pioneers
on Boundary creek and in Camp McKinney.
Mr. Robert Ochsner, the brewer,
paid Midway a flying business visit on
Monday. He reported that Mr. Wehr-
fritz bad left Vernon ai),d had the intention of building a brewery at Kamloops instead; also that Mr. Kline of
Fairview had sold the Golden Gate
hotel to Mr. Elliot, who intended moving bis store business to that part of
the camp. Mr. Kline, he said, intended leaving at once for Western Australia. Mr. Oehsner's bottling works
ivill lie put up on Mr. J. Lyneh's return from Camp McKinney.

DISTRICT NOTES.
—+	
lyir. L. Eholt is still living in Oro.
The Rev. Mr. Outerbriiige has returned to Vernon.
Mr. Atwood is, we are glad to state,
gradually recovering.
A meeting of the directors of the
D. &S, Agricultural Society was held
in Vernon lasl Monday.
The Kamloops agricultural show will
be held on the 3rd, -1th and 5th of October,   Mr. ,1. Mclver is secretary.
Mr, Campbell left White's camp fur
Trail creek on Satnrnuy. He shipped
put a large number of samples of ore
from While's camp, which will be
tested at Wallace, Cieiir d'Alene.
Mr. Jones, a Portland mining man,
is anxious to introduce the pyretic process of treating refractory ores into
the Boundary creek camps, By this
process the sulphur in the ores is utilized as fuel. /
The C. P. E. rate for one ton of ore
sent from Penticton to yancouyer for
test purposes is $1,08 for one hundred
pounds, or $21.20. It is very unlikely
that any test shipments will be made
while this rate is in force.
;\ very good account of Mr. ,1.0. Mc.
Liiren's trip lhrough Kettle river appeared in Ihe Kamloops Sentinel of
August Hist—a plain, unadulterated
statement of facts without the slightest coloring or exaggeration.
Mr. Anderson, who bus been diving
. for gold in the Siniilkameen, reports
good results, About sixty men all told
are placer mining on the stream south
of tbe lini'—some with rockers, others
sluicing—and slate that they are mak.
ing between $1.50 and $1) per day.
The strike made at the head of Slulc
creek, over which there has been so
much excitement, lies on the divide
between Okunagnn and Whatcom
counties In the Cascade range, a short
distance below the line, in tlie Mclbow
district,
The Rush and Oro groups of mines
which have been recently acquired by
eastern cnpilulisls, lie respectively*oil
Mount Chepaca, near the Siinilkaineen river, a few miles across the line,
and on Mount llleiiiehun, near Ihe
|iii|iilh of Palmer lake, known as the
Cove. Both are considered low grade
propositions, but are large bodies of
ore, tree-milling on thu surface.
According to the News tho mere
fact of a bouiissed mill having been
erected at Vernon, has so far had no
immediate effect on tlie local price- pf
wheat, that being still controlled by
the Euderliy mill. This wusonly to be
expected considering the jiniuense
capital nt the buck of Ihe Euderliy mill
and the facilities enjoyed by R. P,
Kilhet k Co. for disposing of t.beii
(lour at the coast. Tailing things all
round, though the price of wheat is
jower than in former years, still the
upper Okanagan farmer is on the
whole in much better luck than agl'i-
pnlturists across the line or in the Canadian Northwest, and Ihis ought to lie,
—i . .:"y,'.r-i,--,i.ii.i)^tfliA!>.»''."«^
sonietbiiig to he thank/.:, 1 jfor, wheth.-r
there is only one mill Jj the district or
two.
Nothing under $1(0 rock can be
shipped profitably from Boundary!
creek with the present freight rates in
force.
Mr. Boss, the well known mining
man who was staying at White's
camp, left Insl week for Spokane, lit
will return shortly.
Mr. T. G. McCormick left, last Friday
for Spokane to complete the transfer
of the St. Lawrence and Jack of
Spades.
Wc are informed, whether rightly or
wrongly we do not know, but on fairly
good authority, that theprolestngninst
.Mr. Graham's election bus been withdrawn.
The Le Roi mine in Trail Creek has a
ten-drill air compressor now on the
way from the east which cost $1,500.
Thirty men are employed conlinii
ously, nnd Ilie ore is being taken out,
as rapidly us Ihe teams can haul it to
the landing. Three carloads a week
are being shipped. The shaft is now
down IKK) feet, and from that level
drifting is being done. The company
is talking of putting on a steamer of
its own to run between Trail creek and
Northport.
Messrs. Denzler, Sebolleld and Gibbs
are making preparations in the Greenwood camp to carry on active development work nn their claim the Stem-
winder. They will continue drifting in
the tunnel already started for tlie purpose of tapping the shaft at a level of
thirty-three feet, after which the drift
will be continued to crosscut the ore
vein and to strike the northern formation or hanging wall. When this is
done the true width of the vein at this
level will have been determined.
The amount of improvement, that
has taken place iu one season on the
pre-emption taken up by Mr. Miller, on
what is termed tlje Island, nt Grand
Prairie, marks this new coiner from
across the line us one of the right kind
nf settlers—in fact one of the kind of
which the country is very much in
need. The building, fencing, ploughing and crops put in would do credit to
many of the oldest, residents. This is
a practical proof that willingness to
work is all that is needed in Ibis country of natural resources to make a creditable showing.
A distressing occurrence look place
last Saturday on the Siniilkameen
river, says the Loomiston Journal. The
young daughter of C, II. Baldwin was
bitten on the right ankle joint by a
rattlesnake. The child did not; know
she had been bitten by a snake, but
thought a bee or other insect had
stung the limb, Her mother and sister discovered the truth and Miss Baldwin ran to Bertrand's farcy for her
father, while the mother heated a fit-e-
si)Ovei and cauterized the bite. George
Woods came to town for a doctor and
Dr. Webb went down and found
that tbe simple remedies applied by
the mother hail apparently saved the
girl's life, but sho was in a very precarious predicament, The leg was
badly swollen, and if prompl measures
had not been taken she would probably have died. The snakes are said lo
be blind at. this time of the year, and
will not sound an alarm at, the approach of a person.
•'T'he C. P. R. are anxious enough, il
appears, to get the carrying of Boundary creek ores tp tlie Tacoma smelter.
They certainly need some such traffic
to make their boat on Okanagan lake
pay. They are a large corporation and
do things on a large scale. In some
respects, however, they appear to he
microscopically small, as an example
will show. Not long since a gentleman at Midway wrote on behalf of
several Greenwood claim owners to
the agent at Pantlcton asking what
rates the company would give on a
ton of ore sent to Vancouver for treatment by Ihe Cyanide process as a test.
IIu was requested in future, when
writing for such information lo enclose
a three cent, stump. He is not likely
to do it nor to work up a trade for the
0, P. R. either, Boundary creek ores
have been shipped lo tbe coast, via
Marcus before, and a company that begrudges a three cent slump is scarcely
likely to work up a business with milling men.
According to the Okanagan Outlook,
"four men aie taking out $75 a day
with rockers. I'liuy are obliged to
carry the dirt about 100 yards to water,
wbieb is supplied from tliu melting
snow and is available only about four
or live hours a day. This is the placer
ground reported by Mr. Yeargin last,
fall. The discovery was made while
prospecting for a quartz ledge., Rich
iloat was found along tlie creek and
side of the mountain and taacod up for
several hundred feet, whon it suddenly
ceased, Naturally tlie hoys began to
prospect for the load where the float
gave out, and after sinking through
about six feet of "wash" found, it.
The ledge proved nineteen feci wide
and rich iu gold, In tasting and, sampling the rock the boys made, the discovery that a great deal of the gold bud
been leaclicid out of the ledge and deposited by tlie action of the wafer into
tbe gravel below. There is where they
have, loiulo tlie rii'd strike reported.
We hi'.ye a sample of the oro, which is
ii, decomposed, iron-stained quartz,
Similar to that, of the Baldwin mine,
recently discovered north of town, and
pronounced by expert'saHrst-closs free-
milling pioivv.tion. Those who are
interested ii. ttw pew strike nre Messrs.
II. W. Yeargin .tod Collins of Con-
/'ouully, und Greiger und Spaillhour of
fiuby."
Mr. Alex. Wallace, as soon as the
assessment work is completed on (lie
Rot) Roy, his claim in Atwood's camp,
upon which he is nt present working,
intends building a house on his preemption on boundary creek, us also a
road to his ranch, which will be a
brunch from the xme built by settlers
from the new wad from Boundary
Mountain into Deadwood. This new
road will shirt from Middle's ranch,
thence by l/.arlan's mine, and on over
the divide between Copper and Boundary creeks. When single individuals
undertake suclj improvements rather
than live in hjo].ated positions, Ibey deserve something belter than the term
"inossbiick" generally applied to
llieni, ami should receive some remuneration for thek labor, even if It came
from the Government.
As a proof flint one half of the pros-
peels or i','(.ther mines have not yel,
been foiuji) thai, exist iu this neighborhood, each week brings to light some
hitherto hidden treasure, The most
/.yeeiit we have to chronicle wns made
by H)r. John Meyer ou Saturday lust
between Wellington and Skylark
camps, The lirst float found was right
on a trail that bud been travelled by a
great number of njeii (showing how
easy jt ,'s unconsciously to trample
wealth under foot) which, on being
broken open, disclosed a sign of mineral, not, very distinct, but sufficient to
put the wary prospector on the scent,
Hy following this clue it was not long
before Mc, Meyer's exertions were
crowned with success by discovering a
ledge of good galena ore, which, if the
signs ure clearly read, should be rich
in silver, with the possibility that the
same carpjes gold as well, The kidge is
about two feet lyiije, and being in the
neighborhood in which high grade ore
exists on other claims, ou development
may prove a valuable find to Ihe discoverer.
Again a Hying visit has been paid
the district hy t^o mining capitalists,
Messrs, Furrell und Mldgen, of Butte,
Montana. These gentlemen came in
by way of Marcus, passing through the
Greenwood cam]), from which they
took a few samples of ore, thence on to
Smith's camp to inspect the Nonsuch,
and by way of Midway back to Marcus, It, seems, a pity that such men
Iind it convenient to stay so short, a
time in the country, and that so few
opportunities are offered them to
make a tljoriiiigh examination of the
different mining camps nud the properties that are to be found therein.
Perhaps the ridiculous method thnl.
bus been i|i vogue of lying up properties to middle men niny account somewhat fop fhe little attention paid by
these men of means und experience lo
ore bodies that ttl'fl known lo be ol
great extent and value. Again, if the
true merits of the prospects to lie found
in the B'!ipi(]iiry creek and oilier
camps are to be appreciated, it behooves the hnldeis of claims lo bestir
themselves and endeavor to furnish
visitors of this class some reliable
party us guide, wild.;!! interest in lbe
welfare of the country siii.ll extend to
a wider circle than is eonlaincd within
lbe bounds of his own self interest.
Then, and not until then, will visitors
Iind il, convenient to remain a longer
time in our midst and take in till' best
properties, ami theii, visit be one of
pleasure, not dlsnppointmont,
